  1. Funny :) My problem is real and I am against animal cruelty, so other ideas are appreciated ...
  2. Hello, I own a 2004 Cayenne S. When the outside temperatures increased, I noticed that when starting the car and when AC is working hard that there is a loud whistling noise coming out of what seems like left front dash vents. The noise slowly goes away when the car reaches the desired temperature. The noise is pretty loud and very annoying, it feels like AC is working against some sort of obstacle in the AC tubing ... There was no such noise during the winter months. When I open ANY window or door (depressurize the car?), the noise goes immediately away. Any ideas? Thanks for help!
  3. The car was at the dealer's shop for 2 days. They also have very little experience with Porsche-installed parking heaters as they could not provide me with this information. They said that they have to contact the Porsche central and I have been waiting for their call for more than 2 weeks. When I find the receiver location, guys at Webasto will install a new remote control system.
  4. Hello, I have a 2004 CS with factory-installed parking heater (made by Webasto). Does anyone know where the receiver box for the remote control is located? The antenna is supposed to be in the rear spoiler but I can't locate the receiver. The receiver should be somewhere in the rear trunk but I need the exact location so that the guys at Webasto can replace it with a new remote control system! Thanks for help!
  5. I have the same problem and nobody can help me, including the authorized dealer. To couple the remote control with your parking heater, you should do this (from an original Webasto manual): 1) Install batteries in the transmitter 2) Remove fuse number 2 from the left dashboard fuse box in your Cayenne 3) Wait for at least 5 seconds 4) Refit fuse in the fuse holder and presss OFF button on the transmitter for at least one second within the next five seconds (talk about complicating stuff ...) This should do the trick, but it doesn't work in my case. My parking heater works fine when I program it or start it from the car but I can not use the remote control. So good luck and please let me know if you get any more info on this annoying issue.
  6. Just to update you about my issue: I have a 2004 CS with Webasto parking heater, which works perfecly when programming a timer or when starting it from within the vehicle. The problem is that my remote control and parking heater cannot connect. I changed the batteries and used the official Webasto instructions on how to couple the heater to the remote without success. My car was at the official Porsche shop and PIWIS found absolutely no faults. So they suspect that either the antenna or the remote control are faulty but they are not sure how to figure it out. Can anyone help me with this frustrating issue before the cold central European winter is over? :) Much appreciated.
  7. Thanks for help but I am not sure if I understand the location correctly. Can you give me some more datail? How would you approach this issue?
  8. Well, I tried with the thin wire and it didn't help - still no windshield washer coming out. When I push the stalk forward I can clearly hear the "pump" working behind the passender's side dashboard. To me it sounds louder than when the pump for the front windshield, as if it was working against pressure (ie, clogged pipes). But this is just an observation. Ideas appreciated.
  9. Hello, I noticed that on my 2004 CS the rear windshield washer does not work. The front and headlight washers work perfectly but when I push the stalk to activate the rear windshield washer the "pump" and the rear wiper activate but no water actually comes out the rear nozzle. Does this sound like "clogged" lines? Any suggestions for a DIY cleaning? Any other ideas?
  10. Loren, thanks for the tip. I did just that yesterday and no fauls showed up! So I remail clueless. And I still can not program the Webasto Telestart by removing the fuse #2 and then inserting it again. The one guy at my local Porsche shop who could "maybe" be able to progarm it is sick and nobody else has a clue on how to program it. Are there any official Porsche instructions on how to set up remote control to Cayenne Webasto parking heater?
  11. I am having the same issue, the auto-pulling doesn't work and I have to slam the trunk real hard. The car was at the PIWIS tester about 10 days ago and there were no foults (?). Maybe should I try disconnecting the "auto-pulling" module as well? Where is it located? Has anyone else tried this before? Any other options?
  12. No, the car has only had W413, W420, W621 and W624 during the time it was serviced in Germany. The car is now definitely our of warranty and serviced at an independant shop. What to do?
  13. I have a question about 2004 CS. A few days ago, when we were driving home in a winter conditions with my wife and child in the rear seats, I noticed that there was very little air coming from the rear vents. Even though the hot air was blowing from the front vents, there was very little amount of cold air coming from the rear vents. There was even no significant difference if the rear vents were opened or closed. The car heats up just fine with only the front vents working, but I still think this is strange. This issue has been present for a week now and it might have been there for a longer time but I just didn't notice it. The car was at the shop 10 days ago for the main battery replacement and the tester showed no faults! Any ideas?
  14. Thank you so much. I am still wondering if there are ony official Porsche instructions on how to couple the Telestart to your parking heater? I was only able to find the one from Webasto - maker of the parking heater...
  15. Hello, I have a 2004 CS. Is is possible to replace a broken light grey plastic piece called "Tiptronic control on steering wheel" on just one side? The plastic became loose, the illumination is not working but the shifting works fine. Can someone provide me a part number? I was unable to find this piece in the Porsche catalogue so it perhaps can not be replaced. Thanks
